Leading Edge Certification is that
certification. Created through an alliance of nonprofits, universities

areas of certification. Participating educators become "Leading Edge
Certified" upon the program's successful completion.

face to face and blended (hyrbrid) learning environments.
Leading Edge is an internationally recognized certification program,
created collaboratively by many stakeholder groups, managed by an
alliance of these groups, and shared freely across the globe.
Certification and actual professional development is delivered by
eligible alliance members.
